Voodoo portrait

Hey. So I have recently discovered CG hub. Its an extremely inspirational site full of extremely talented people. (Lets hope I don't noob it up too much) :-p

I have recently entered a drawing jam challenge of theirs. Voodoo witch or shaman is the title. I have wanted to start looking at human portraiture and so for this challenge I created a young girl. A granddaughter of a voodoo witch who is caught in the act of trying on her grandmas jewellery. I like the picture but also I feel it lacks any sense of texture or maturity. Maybe ill work back into it soon and make it better. But in the mean time it was an interesting learning curve. 




I would love to know what people think of it, or if anyone has any advice on how I could improve my painting technique?

All the best
Graeme
